Tw/G. I love acronyms. This one, “twig”, stands for “Time with God”, and it’s something I try to do every day, first thing in the morning. I love it. Getting up early is now a well-established, ingrained pattern of behavior for me. (Well, ok, the dog helps more than once in a week by sleeping horizontally across my side of the bed, leaving me with no room.) Bless Poochie!
Tw/G time is growing time. It’s spiritual watering time. I can’t help but think “I am the vine and you are the branches” – I’m a twig. This daily practice is how I grow, slow ‘n’ steady. I know that on some days, there won’t be much for show, but the long-haul, the one day at a time, the one moment at a time effort is what counts. It’s where the real work gets done. It’s not always going to be glamorous, or “mountain-top”, not all budding or flowering in bright colors. But that’s cool. I guess plants need shade, too. After all, God covers the sun’s light “to give us the coolness of night.” (Indescribable, Chris Tomlin).
To be honest, I only recently got tired of writing on my to do list, “Time with God”, and shortened it to Tw/G. This just looks like it should be pronounced “twig”, so that’s what I’m going with. Since I found the Lord – or rather, He found me (with a 2×4 upside the head), morning devotional time is one of the few things I’ve kept consistently in my schedule. I am so very grateful for this. I’ll keep writing each day and tell you more about my story – or rather, God’s story in my life. Praise the Lord!
Tw/G is the first thing on my list each day. Since I make the list after my Tw/G, it gets CROSSed off (“+”) right away. What a positive way to get the day going!
Are you ready? Let’s go!
